Publisher's Summary

Daniel Graves is a man of many talents. He juggles his responsibilities of being a painter, a teacher, the director of The Florence Academy of Art, a husband, and a father remarkably well. He knew from the age of three or four who he wanted to be. His career launched when he was 11 years old.

"It was an art show in a local shopping mall; I entered something and I won the first prize," he says, smiling.

He studied with many artists including Richard Lack, Richard Serrin, and Signorina Simi, and received regular critiques from Pietro Annigoni. He admits never to have studied with anyone for a long period of time because of the family responsibilities towards a wife and a child since the age of 21. He wants his students to be authentic, and encourages them to find their own voice. Artists who are on the "same team" as him sometimes criticize Florence Academy. His response to that is simple.

"We need allies and not critics because what we all trying to do is extremely difficult. To make art that is beautiful is very hard."
